This chapter describes a way to conceptualize and measure employment performance. It argues that to assess employment performance since the late 1970s, the most useful measure is employment change. This means change in the employment rate, not change in the number of people employed. It would be helpful to adjust this for work hours, but data limitations prevent that and the best available data suggest that doing so would not change the story much in any event. The chapter also outlines a strategy for analyzing the impact of equality-enhancing institutions and policies on employment performance.

Keywords:   inequality, employment change, employment rate, work hours
